The Gift of Cinder

This is my sister, holding the copy of Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, that I bought for her. Yes, I literally bought her a copy, since I'm pretty sure that I've loaned out my copy...and I can't remember which friend has it.

We have fairly different tastes in books. She's totally prepared for the creepy, scary, and the attention-grabbing. I can only handle that in small doses before I have to sleep with the light on and a Disney movie playing on a TV. It's not pretty.

There are some books that we do have in common. Harry Potter, Howl's Moving Castle, The Hunger Games...these are all books with strong characters and adventure. That's why I thought that she would like Cinder. It's got kick-ass female characters (good and evil), and a romance that doesn't overpower the story. My sister is also someone that needs to be grabbed within the first 25 pages to really get through and enjoy a book. I knew that this one was perfect for that. When I read it, I couldn't set it down!

I imagine that she'll be picking up Scarlet soon, too. Although, I'm going to let her buy that one on her own. Her review will be guest-posted this week, so look forward to a new voice on the blog :)

Awww I love that your sister reads too. Mine doesn't and I've always longed to share it with her.

VERY cool that you bought her the book.

I'm like her in that I too must be sucked in within 25 pages.
